What you have experienced is the problem everybody has with the understanding of how a turkey cooks. Sure the BREAST was perfectly cooked but it is the dark meat of the bird that dictates when it's done. The 165 you seek must come from the dark meat....(thigh area where it meets the drumstick.) It could have been that your bird wasn't completely thawed yet but my money is with you procedures.
